A formidable brunch that packs a punch.

The salted yolk chick n’ waffles is meant for the hungry and ambitious. Three golden crispy pieces of fried chicken, a block of charcoal waffles and a whole potato gratin definitely sounds like a mouthful.

I love the idea of southern fried chicken and waffles with a drizzle of maple syrup. It’s a beautiful combination further enriched with a small bowl of molten salted egg yolk sauce. But in this case, though the fried chicken was juicy, it lacked seasoning which thankfully the salted egg yolk sauce made up for. Also wish there was more maple syrup to balance the saltiness of the whole dish. But overall, it’s still a sweet deal for brunch considering the quantity of protein! Made even sweeter if you have a 1-for-1 Entertainer subscription.

Still thinking of what to have for brunch this Sunday? Fret not!

The braised beef cheek with carrot kimchi would make anyone's heart (and stomach) content! The beef cheek literally tears upon contact because it's so tender and it just melts/emulsifies in your mouth. Even though the flavour of the beef is rich and robust, it goes well with the heartier sides: carrot kimchi, sweet potato and potato mash, wholemeal toast, and of course, a beautiful poached egg. 😋 #burpproved

Oh yeah, did I mention that Montana's brunch menu is available all day?! 😜

Thank you Ying for the warm hospitality and Burpple for the tasting invite!

FROCO - Frozen Coconut!

A new concept, @myhusklife, has arrived at our shores in the 2nd basement of @plazasingapura and it is froco. After literally years of development to perfect the recipe, let me present to you their frocos! One can't classify it as ice-cream or froyo because of its extremely low dairy content. However, I think it's a great alternative to them because it is low in calories, sugar and saturated fat.

The froco comes in three sizes short, tall ($3.8, $5 respectively without any toppings) and a parfait ($6.5 with 3 toppings). There's an assortment of toppings from fruits, granolas to chocolate. Upon having your first bite, you'll be shocked at how rich the coconut flavour is but at the same time, it tastes natural and it doesn't taste artificial at all.

Also available are the smoothies that come in three ranges. Green (for the very health conscious), Power (for the exercise buffs) and Fruity (for the casual eater)! I'd recommend the Pump It, Aloha Dance, Round-House Kick and The Bruce Lee. There are 9 options available so go and discover your favourite.

Thank you team of @myhusklife and Shermaine and Walter for the warm yet cool hospitality. Of course @burpple too for the invite! 😊


Another of my favourites from @biglazychop - the humble Hotplate Hakka Beancurd (S$13++)!
At #zichar restaurants, I must order 铁板豆腐 without fail and I dare say that #BigLazyChop's rendition is one of the best I've ever had.
The tofu is homemade and it has a smooth silky interior barely held together by the fried skin. The effervescent thick meaty sauce together with the fried egg make a wonderfully savoury combination. Just give me this and a bowl of white rice (or two) and I'll be utterly satisfied.
Thank you @biglazychop, @foodnewspr and @burpple for the scrumptious meal! 😋


A restaurant that was named after me, @biglazychop. Haha I kid! It must be some sort of freaky coincidence.

Located on the ground floor of the CSL Student Hostel along Short Street, this restaurant specialises in #zichar dishes with unique and special sauces.

For example, their XL Pork Spare Ribs come in seven different sauces: salted egg, buttermilk, coffee, citrus orange, butter champagne, citrus champagne and beer. I tried their butter champagne ribs (S$23++ for 5 ribs), and boy was it delectable. My friends can attest to how clean my ribs were after ravaging them. The pork was rather tender and fell quite easily off the bone but the highlight was definitely the thick butter champagne sauce.

The establishment has quite limited indoor seating so do make reservations. It's also closed for business on Mondays.

Thank you #biglazychop, @foodnewspr and @burpple for the finger-licking-good dinner! 😋

Really economical economical rice!

Located on the second floor of the dingy Parklane Shopping Mall along Selegie Rd is Isle Eating House. The queues here are spectacularly long but they are constantly moving.

The cafe sells economical rice; dishes like hor fun, fried rice and laksa; and fish soup. The longest queue belonged to the cai png vendor so being Singaporean, I decided to go for that.

To my amazement, I ordered rice with, mala chicken, salted egg yolk chicken, tofu with minced pork, spicy long bean and a fried egg, all for $5.30. Whut? The dishes were hot, fresh and yummy. If I'm in Selegie/Prinsep area and I need a good cheap meal, this is it.


I look at the number of posts, then I look at my stomach and I realise my body is a machine.
